What are the Motorcycle Laws in New Jersey?

In a lawsuit following a motorcycle wreck, a court will look at the facts to determine who is at fault. Bikers must understand the basics of motorcycle law in New Jersey to ride safely and increase the chances of compensation in the unfortunate event of a crash. There are a few fundamental laws related to operating a motorcycle in New Jersey.

Motorcycle riders under the age of 21 must wear a helmet. For motorcyclists over 21 years of age, helmets are not mandatory if the rider has been licensed for two years or has completed an approved safety course. Eye protection is always required for all riders, as is a passenger seat and footrest if there are others on board.

Specific equipment is required, like right and left mirrors and a compliant muffler. New Jersey has mandatory inspection rules as well as a required minimum insurance coverage. Additionally, while two motorcyclists can ride side-by-side, they cannot “lane split,” in other words, pass between rows of vehicles or share a lane with them.

In the aftermath of an accident, a court will first assess how the accident happened and who was at fault. One of our Marlton attorneys can gather evidence from the accident scene to prove the motorcyclist was obeying all the legal requirements.

How Can a Motorcyclist Recover Losses in NJ?

Every civil lawsuit involves two elements of proof – liability and damages. Liability refers to who is responsible for the accident, and damages are the amount of money awarded to compensate for the motorcyclist’s losses. In the event of a motorcycle accident, it's our job at KaplunMarx to build the strongest case possible for you. Your compensation could come in the form of a negotiated claim, a settlement, or a verdict from a law suit that we file for you.

What Are the Basic Elements of Civil Liability?

Every successful motorcycle accident case is built on a foundation of “legal negligence.” More specifically, a plaintiff generally must prove that the defendant named in their lawsuit or settlement demand was negligent in some way, which involves proving that four elements of legal negligence apply to their circumstances.

A person may be considered negligent if they owed a duty of reasonable care to someone else, violated that duty by acting recklessly or carelessly, and directly caused an accident through that misconduct that resulted in the recoverable damages the plaintiff is seeking compensation for. Every motor vehicle driver automatically assumes a duty of care towards everyone else around them, including motorcyclists, but demonstrating the other components of negligence can be tricky without guidance from an experienced Marlton attorney.

Establishing Liability

In a crash, if the motorcycle rider followed all legal requirements and was riding carefully, there is a good chance the motorist caused the collision. However, in New Jersey, a court will use comparative negligence, that is, analyze any fault on the part of the injured party. The police report and eye-witness testimony will help reconstruct the accident and determine who was responsible. If a court or jury decides that the motorcyclist was less than fifty percent responsible, they are entitled to compensation.

Recovering Damages

After determining liability, a court hears evidence about damages: financial loss, pain and suffering, and present and future medical care necessary to make the injured person “whole.” Damages can be complex, as injuries in a motorcycle accident may be severe, involving anything from broken bones to paralysis, head and spinal injuries, even amputation. A claimant will need to gather evidence regarding personal injuries, lost wages, medical bills and treatment, and anything else related to their losses or disability.

How Could Comparative Fault Impact Recovery?

While a motorcyclist who is found less than 50 percent at fault for their own injuries is still allowed to pursue financial restitution following a motorcycle crash, they cannot seek recovery for the full value of their damages. Any percentage of fault a plaintiff bears for an accident will result in a proportional reduction of any damage award they receive from a civil court. For example, if a motorcyclist bears 25 percent of the fault for an accident, they could only recover 75 percent of their total injuries and losses.

Are There Time Limits on Motorcycle Accident Claims?

No matter how severe or life-altering an injured motorcyclist’s damages are following an accident, they only have a limited amount of time to pursue civil compensation. A statutory filing deadline of two years applies to almost all personal injury litigation, so any prospective plaintiff who waits more than two years after discovering their injuries to file suit will likely be time-barred from recovering any compensation for that particular accident. Among other services, a seasoned motorcycle wreck lawyer in Marlton could provide irreplaceable assistance building a strong case and getting the litigation process started before this deadline expires.
